HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

A grand day indeed! As a very young girl, I have memories of green porridge for breakfast, mom drawing shamrocks on our faces, wearing pins saying "Kiss Me I'm Irish" and being afraid of ever wearing one again when a boy in school actually tried to kiss me, watching movies like "Darby O'Gill and the little people", and "The Quiet Man". Oh, the fun! My parents have always made a big deal out of this holiday, and they have always made us proud of our Irish heritage. As I've been able to travel to Ireland on several occasions, I am even more proud of such a beautiful land, and equally beautiful people. Just take a look at the beauty of Ireland; the place for which I was named.In front of the Cliffs of Moher, 2004

More cliffs.


One of my favorite places in the whole world! Ah, amazing Ireland!

Oh that looks like such a beautiful place. That is neat that you got to visit the land of your ancestors. I have always wanted to go there.

"Oh she's my dear my darlin' one, her eyes so sparklin', full of fun...no other, no other, can match the likes of her!" Did you watch? I didn't. :(

Oh, how fun! I miss that little trip! I'm sure Justin's girlfriends, the ones that threatened our very lives would agree!
